Donors can help the 92 participating organizations win prizes from a pool of over $20,000 in prizes sponsored by CRCF and a number of area businesses. New this year, donors will have the chance to win themselves, as there will be six gift card drawings throughout the day for donors that give $100 or more during designated time periods. The full prize listing is available at cattaraugusgives.org.

Additionally, a number of participating nonprofits will have matches and challenges available, which will increase the impact of donors’ gifts.

The public is invited to make their gifts and watch the leaderboard throughout the day at cattaraugusgives.org, said CRCF Executive Director Kirk Windus.

“The energy that Cattaraugus Gives every year is palpable for everyone involved – for the Foundation, the participating nonprofits, for the donors, and for the community that benefits from the funds raised,” said Windus. “The generosity of our community never disappoints, and we are excited to see the community rally to make a difference for our nonprofits and our community again this year.”
